you have ever been in. >> vivian and mike green join us. our special guests. they're on their last date before michael deploys to bahrain. we appreciate it. he's going on his fifth deployment next week. and you're here tonight for your last date. so many people watching think this is entertaining and it's amazing and it's fun. for you, it's something more than that. >> oh, yeah, he's going to dance with me. he promised. he never dances. i think i get at least one slow song, one fast song. >> why is this ball so important, the commander in chief ball where you're going to be? >> for us, because it's for the military families. we obviously could not have come to this one. we'll be upstairs with all of our military friends enjoying an amazing night out, celebrating the inauguration. >> piers has a couple questions for your husband, but first, you have two little boys, and they don't know he's going away yet, right? >> we talked about it. something we did on saturday was a national day of service, we did care packages, and we were able to talk to them about who we were packing the care packages for. they thought maybe dad would get one eventually, so they were packing extra stuff in that one. >> that's great. >> let me ask you, mike, you're a lieutenant commander in the u.s. navy. your fifth deployment in ten years of marriage. you're off to bahrain for 12 months, you told me. you only had a two-week break in the middle. it's pretty grueling on the family you leave behind. tough on you guys, but tough on the family. >> with things like facebook, facetime, they make it a lot easier. e-mail. it's nice to reach back and call them on the phone. it's nice i'm going to be on a land base and not on a ship. it's easier to call from land than a ship. it's easier to stay connected now than it was 30 years ago. >> this is not a bad perk, being at this amazing night. >> this is awesome. >> you're at the commander in chief ball upstairs. i believe it's a superstar mexican rock band. they sold 30 million albums so they're pretty good. excited to be here? >> i am. it's great. like vivian said, i'm leaving in seven days, so this is a pretty cool going-away gift, if you will, and it's cool to hang out with all of the other military families. there's absolutely nothing unique about my story. four or five days from now, there are thousands of families who are doing the same thing. it's really cool to be part of this. >> let me thank you for your service and i hope you enjoy a fabulous evening. i hope you do, too, because you have earned it. >> thank you. >> as an american, you feel such incredible pride in our armed forces and what they do and they have done. >> my brother is a british army colonel, and he goes away to afghanistan and iraq. he has four little girls under the age of 13, so i know what it's like for the family. it's very, very tough on them, but you do an amazing job and we all greatly appreciate it, so thank you. earlier, i talked to one of my all-time favorite musicians, a genius. stevie wonder, a man who has personified not only the obamas, but also martin luther king day, he was one of the people who got the day created in the first place and made martin luther king's birthday a national holiday. i talked to him about that, about the first couple, about gun control, about many things. a fascinating few minutes with a living musical legend. >> stevie wonder, how are you? >> great. how are you? >> is that your british accent? >> i was born in england, actually. i moved to the states like yourself. >> this is a huge night. and for you, i guess, a very special day. you campaigned very hard to have a national holiday on martin luther king day. this is that day, and it's the day that barack obama is inaugurated again. how do you feel today? >> very excited, very, very happy. i feel like there's so many things that i envisioned, that i saw, and those things are happening, coming true. the only thing i'm hoping for is that we truly will get people together. you know, sometimes i wish we could have even more than a democratic party and republican party, a united party. where people come together, but i think that if we just get people thinking that way, we can really come together. we have definitely, the president who has proven that he wants to do that by how he did things the last four years and now these next four years. >> he made a very powerful speech today, and it seemed like the gloves had come off a bit, like he was determined now to really try to push through the things that matter most to him. what did you make of his speech >> it was a great speech. i agree with you because truly, we can't talk about it and just talk about it. we have to be about it. we got to take off the gloves of being a politician and really look at the reality of how we are and where we are as human beings on this planet. we've got to make this planet more green. we've got to do something about the various things he's talked about. the rights of women and people in general. and we've got to keep our kids more safe. we can't just watch it on the news and say, oh, that's such a shame. and then after it dies down, we wait for it to happen again. i was thinking, you know, because i saw you on the tv talking about the whole gun thing. and i was talking to one of my friends, and i said, you know, you should go get me a gun, let me go with you to get a gun, and then i can show how easy it is for me to get a gun, then imagine me with a gun. it's just crazy. i think we have to do something about it. and i'm hoping that in these next four years, with an idea i have come up with, that i can do something about how we can come up with a solution. because there's a solution to any problem. i think we just have to get to it. >> well said. you're performing at all of the balls, all the major ones, the inaugural ball and the commander in chief ball. any secret about what you're going to be performing? >> just some good stuff. >> all your stuff is good. >> are you going to come sing with me? >> what are you thinking, a duet on "superstitious"? >> i know you were with the president and first lady last night. what sort of form were they in and what did you say to them? >> we just talked about, well, the first lady was talking about how she is looking at some of my songs, some of my music and trying to say their most favorite songs i had done. >> what is their favorite? >> they didn't say what they were. but i hope that i did something. we did, obviously, the signed, sealed, delivered song, and other stuff. it was fun. >> what do you think martin luther king would have made of a black president being re-elected, having a second inauguration today? >> i believe that he would have been very happy to know that america has moved to a place that they are able to elect a president, not based on the color of his skin, but as he talked about, the content of his character. and that, he would be very happy about. i think the state of where we are, divided on so many different things, unfortunately, that's unacceptable. we must become united, united states of america, but i think the majority of the people are saying, listen, let's do away with these old habits, these old things that need to be dead and gone, and move on to really bringing our nation together. and i think he would say that. time to move on and make it better and get it right. >> well, i'm very excited about tonight. looking forward to your performance. and if you do need me, i will be in close proximity and available. >> start warming up. warm up, mate. >> all right, buddy. >> good to see you. >> good to see you, take care. >> i tell you what, stevie wonder has a very good english accent. he had it right down to a tee there. i want to bring you somebody who is almost as big a legend now in the music world as stevie wonder. will.i.am. welcome. i got nearly blinded by your camera. >> oh, yeah. >> coolest camera i have ever seen. >> i made and created this thing. >> you designed it? >> designed it, funded it. i am bringing it to america and france. >> really? what are you make of today, a big historic day. the president made a big historic speech. were you pleased with the message on education, which i know you care about? >> i'm really excited about the next four years. there's a lot we can do in terms of encouraging kids and changing inner cities forever, really. by encouraging these kids to be entrepreneurs and scientists. that's where i'm putting all of my focus on. >> what else do you think his priorities should be in the next four years? if you have to choose a few, he can't go through everything he wants to do. >> jobs in america, you know, around consumer electronics. next year, consumer electronics will make $200 billion, and i would like to see those $200 billion, you know, a lot of that money here in america. >> do you think so many jobs from big companies are being outsourced at the moment? apples and company like that, they spend too much abroad? >> i think they spend pretty much everything abroad when it comes to manufacturing. we have to educate our kids and educate america. you know, so they have no excuse. the excuse is, the skillset isn't here in america. so if we get these american citizens and these kids a skill set, you know, hopefully we can change and give incentives. give companies incentives to manufacture things here. >> by the way, what did you do to stop going deaf? you must know? >> you guys can't hear? >> i can't hear a thing. can you? >> listening to this band, mana. >> mana, from mexico. >> yes. >> big in mexico, right? >> they're huge. >> let's just listen to them for a second or two.

the national mall. while today's inauguration may have lacked some of the spectacles from four years ago, there was a lot of emotion. an important day for all americans. 50 years ago today, martin luther king led the march on washington, and 30 years ago, martin luther king day was signed into law as a holiday. representative lewis was the youngest speaker of that 1963 march. earlier he told dana bash what he was feeling as he watched america's first african-american president take the oath for the second time. >> i did everything possible today to keep from crying. when i saw him standing there, taking the oath with the bible of martin luther king jr., knowing that just 50 short years ago, that dr. king stood on the steps of the lincoln memorial and said i have a dream. >> of course, this was actually the fourth time that president obama has taken the oath of office. let's bring in our panel, van jones, cnn contributor who served as president obama's green jobs adviser in 2009. sally quinn, margaret hoover, republican consultant, cornell belcher, democratic strategist who served as a pollster for president obama's 2012 re-election team. i wonder how you think this anniversary, this martin luther king day, informed and was infused throughout president obama's remarks today. >> i'll go back to even when he was senator obama. he always talked about, he also understood the gravity and talked about, i stand on the shoulders of the great men and women of the civil rights era who made this possible. even early on, many of the civil rights leaders early on in the primary process were with hillary clinton and it took a while for them to get used to obama and sort of trust him and know who he was. and he used a lot of that conversation saying, look, because of you all, i am possible. and i remember we saw congressman lewis there, he was one of the people who had sort of that great turmoil because he was originally for hillary, then he said his consciousness, he changed for barack obama. i think the president gets it, he understands it, and he's very respectful of it. >> i also think about, he spoke about the fierce urgency of now early on. for many in the gay community in the united states, they didn't feel that he had that sense of fierce urgency. i think today after the speech, i think there are a lot of gay and lesbian americans who were surprised to hear a president use the word stonewall and use it in the same sentence as selma and seneca falls and would certainly argue that he now has a sense of fierce urgency of now. >> in by doing so, he has mainstreamed the gay rights movement as a modern civil rights movement and he has put it on the same platform as civil rights, as women's rights. it's really extraordinary and it's something that frankly republicans are going to have to answer to. two republican justices, john roberts -- i didn't see kennedy, but they're looking at them to how decisions are going to come down when they hear the arguments in march. >> you know, when martin luther king first spoke on the mall, i was living here. and i was coming down, and people were screaming at all of the black people who were coming to hear him, and they were screaming and throwing things and calling them african bullies. and today, when i was watching this scene, that's all i could think about, was the hatred that was coming from everywhere toward the people and toward martin luther king. and there was an interesting body language with obama today. he seemed so much more confident. he sort of loped out, you know. last time, he was more, you know, sort of formal and ridged. >> we call it swagger. >> yeah, like i own it now. i'm here. and you could sense that he really felt, even in this last four years that so much had changed, and he was able to talk more about equality. it seemed to me there was more about equality in his speech today. and i don't think he would have done that four years ago, because it was already clear that a black american had been elected president. now, i think he wanted to emphasize it, look, we're here now, and it's working. >> it was so important that he did both things he did. he affirmed the history and the struggle. and there's a way that dr. king is almost being photo shopped in now as one of the founders of what it means to be an american. that's an amazing thing. if you know dr. king's true story, as you said, he was reviled. the last two years of his life, he was speaking out about poverty. he was reaching out to mexican-americans, speaking out against the vietnam war when it wasn't popular. the "new york times" stepped away from him. he was not this revered figure. 50 years after the speech and 45 years after his assassination, for him to be embraced, we talked more in the past week about dr. king than we talked about george washington. he's really become the pillar, i think, of moral consciousness for the new patriotism that obama is for. but he didn't stop with african-americans. he's now expanding it. he's talking about the lesbian and gay struggle, talking about latinos. wanting this new american patriotism to include everybody. i say there's a difference now between the liberty only form of patriotism that you her from some people in the far right. liberty and justice for all patriotism, and this speech, i think, is really going to mark that new patriotism. >> can i jump in on that other thing, similarities? king was on the whole poverty conversation and the justice, poverty, you know, next question about justice, the next thing was about poverty, but there's a connection there with obama also. remember, when obama first graduated from ivy league college, he didn't go to wall street or k street in d.c., he went and became a community organizer, working on issues of poverty. a lot of people sort of on the left would argue, and especially from the black community, argue now that quite frankly, what happened to that obama, the community organizer in the conversations about poverty and will that also be one of the things he takes up in this second term, the issue of poverty? we also know like king, it was an issue that was once near and dear to him. >> we want to listen to this moment, president obama talking about newtown, an event that affected everyone, but certainly affected president obama. we heard him speak very emotionally about it last week. here's what he said today, also speaking about detroit. >> it is now our generation's task to carry on what those pioneers began. for our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity, until bright young students and engineers are listed in our work force rather than expelled from our country. our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of detroit, to the hills of appalachian to newtown know they're cared for and cherished and always safe from harm. >> i should point out we have just been told the obama motorcade is en route to the ball. we anticipate seeing him and the first lady, michelle obama, quite soon at the first of two inaugural balls they'll be stopping at. the balls we have been witnessing earlier. newtown certainly has impacted this president greatly. how much do you think gun control issues are going to kind of dominate the first few weeks of office for him? >> i think the president has a choice to make. he has a choice of how to spend the political capital and the first choice out of the gate. clearly, his heart is in gun control, but the pragmatic side may go for immigration. depends on if he's going legacy or if he's going to be the progressive he was today on the mall. we have to wait and see what he's going to do. how about the one thing we haven't talked to? what really boils down to an explicit rebuke of republicans when he was defending liberalism and the programs for the great society, medicare and medicaid. saying, this does not mean we're a nation of takers. i mean, that really was a slap to the paul ryans, the small-government republicans. >> directly. paul ryan has kind of made his bread and butter saying, americans, some are makers and some are takers. >> 47% who got republicans in trouble, who got mitt romney in trouble on the campaign. and again, you saw this other side of the president today, one that was doubling down on progressivism and saying i'm not going to be pushed around this time. this is where i stand. >> we're going to take a quick break. we anticipate seeing michelle obama, president obama. a lot of eyes will be on michelle obama, wondering what she is wearing. a lot of american designers are glued to the television, waiting to see if one of their dresses will be worn by the first lady. it's apparently down to two. none of the designers have been informed whether or not

>> i think she is doing a good job. i could give her an a-plus. we study the first ladies and we study women, actually. so we get a sense of how politics operates on another sort of sphere. and one of the capacities that the first lady, the role of first lady, has is that it offers the person who steps into it the chance to be a symbol. to have a kind of symbolizing function. so if she chooses, the first lady can decide whether she wants to be the face of her husband's administration. personifying it and sending out messages that are psychological and emotional in nature. and i think michelle obama has done that. >> you wonder about, you know, a sense of freedom for the second term. you see her, her new hairdo. do first ladies tend to express more freedom during the second term, once a campaign is over? is there less pressure to conform? >> oh, i think there's a lot less pressure all the way around. but i do have a piece of advice for mrs. obama. not that she's asked me for any of it. but one of the other sort of opportunities a first lady has is she can use what we call the unofficial sphere or the social sphere of parties and events to build community. and that capacity for the first lady goes back to our first first lady in many ways, dolly madson. and it's kind of felting we're talking about the first lady on the inauguration weekend since the very sort of first inaugural ball we think about was held in dolly madison's honor. what dolly madison showed in washington, you can use those parties and social events to build political community. so, again, no one has asked me, but i would give mrs. obama the advice, give a lot more parties and invite everybody. >> and kathryn, you were looking at pictures there, she certainly is a fashionista. nancy reagan was a fashionista and you're talking about dolly madison. how do you compare michelle obama to her most recent predecessors, laura bush, and secretary of state hillary clinton? >> i think that every first lady has to define the role for herself. so there are things that are available to her. she has access, she has chances to exert power. the office of first lady has a power just in showing up. and i think each of our first ladies that in our living memory have exercised that power very well. i know that mrs. laura bush was an incredibly powerful and effective first lady. but she did it rather quietly and a more mibehind the scenes kind of way. in fact, i would say her career after first lady hood is an example for all first ladies. and, of course, mrs. clinton was a stepping stone to even more power. so i think each woman defines it for herself. and i think mrs. obama has been a good example of that. i'm curious to see what she is going to do in four years. >> we all are. thank you, kathryn. we appreciate it. and you can't talk presidential inauguration without some historical context. so next, experts on the 18th century, the 19th century and one on the to20th century join me on the mall in washington as well as all of these folks. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you don't have to be a golf pro to walk like one. ♪ when you walk 10,000 steps a day, it's the same as walking a professional golf course. humana. health and well-being partner of the pga tour. >>> you're going to want to watch this. i could have done the whole show on this. apart from the date and the oath of office, most of what we saw on inauguration day is not spelled out in the constitution. and over the years, there has been a lot of unexpected things happen on inauguration day. let's talk about it now with the back story radio's american history guys. peter onoff is a history professor at the university of virginia. edward airs is a historian and president of the university of richmond. and brian balanlo is a universi of virginia history professor. i got it right? host of the public radio program "back story" with the american history guys. let's get right to it. i love it. let's start with the oath. so peter the words, "so help me god" aren't in the official oath but supposedly george washington ad libbed it and every president since followed his lead. >> yeah, well, we don't know. we'll never know. but i will tell you he invoked providence. >> if you don't know, who knows? come on! >> providence. yes. very much believe that god was a part of this thing. and if god wasn't on our side, to coin a phrase, it was going to go down the tubes. >> okay. so brian, speaking of the oath, president obama took it twice four years ago, and he's going to take it twice this year, too. how unusual is that? ♪ doo-doo doo-doo >> good answer. >> taking it twice four years ago, a third time. there was a little boo-boo. it's not so unusual to take it twice when the inauguration falls on a sunday, which is why he's taking it twice this time around, don. >> okay. ed. yes. >> i've been told to go fast. we all learned about william henry harrison in school. the president who got sick in his inauguration and died a month later. i'm just joking around. back in 1841. is that really how it happened? >> yes. it was the longest inaugural address in history and turned out to be really bad weather and that turns out to be a really bad combination. >> really? >> yep. >> what other memorable moments from inaugurations past should we know about? there are too many -- >> yeah. well, ed, why don't you talk about lincoln's second inaugural and the fact nobody thought that was a big deal. >> yeah, if you go back and read the press, the inaugural speech considered the greatest in american history now that we actually study and there's very few we do, lincoln's second inaugural, binding up the wounds of the nation and so forth. the response at the time was what was that? what's he actually going to do with the south now? >> yeah, what kind of program is that? >> how did we get to -- how did we get to a tradition of having poets? it seems like every inaugural we have a poet. >> it's not a tradition. >> john f. kennedy was the first one. >> robert frost in 1961. >> in our lifetimes, don. >> our lifetimes. >> not yours, but ours. >> yeah, you're right. that was pretty close. i started thinking about that ever since -- when maya angelou gave her poem. and i was like, when did we start --. >> it's a great tradition. i think the only thing better would be having a historian. >> or three historians. >> we do mythology at inauguration and created a myth at the first one. that's the big deal. >> peter. >> yeah. >> put president obama into a historical context. >> oh! right. >> in 20 seconds. >> go! >> yeah. well, we're still around. and i think the best they think is to refer back to the second inaugural of lincoln and to imagine a great war to free slaves that end slavery in america. that one day, a dissen dent of -- well, we think he was, actually. that's right. an african-american would become president is just astonishing. nobody could have predicted it in a period when african-americans didn't have civil rights. so i think that's -- >> also within our lifetime. >> yeah, right. >> go ahead. >> i'm just saying that the pivot -- because if you were to look back and see what has shaped so many inaugural, so many elections all along, it's the questions of race and slavery. you know. the one that came closest to blowing up is 1877 when hayes came in and they think the civil war is going to break out again because the two parties are so close. >> for some reason, republicans and democrats didn't get along back then. can you imagine that? >> my gosh. i could sit and listen to these guys -- i'm at a loss for words. i listen to you guys and the producers are like let's go, and i'm like, go on. thank you. such a pleasure to meet you. >> see you in four years. >> don't go away. we'll talk more in the break. and i would like to have you guys back on. i really enjoy listening. >> thank you. >>> this is where it is all happening. the inaugural weekend, a celebration of our electoral process and a moment of great pride for everyone in this country. more from the mall in washington. that's next.

[applause] right now, as we gather here in washington, we are sobered by the knowledge that we have troops in all corners of the world, many of them in harms way. we are fighting to wars. -- two wars. we face dangerous threats to our security. we depend on the men and women of our armed services to keep us safe. we also know that service and sacrifice aren't limited to those who wear the uniform. because every time a serviceman redeploys, there is an empty seat at the table back home, and a family that has to bear an extra burden. that's why michelle has spent so much time these last few months working with our military families [applause]. and that's why tonight we don't just salute our troops, we salute the military families who have earned the respect of a grateful nation.

[cheers] yeah, teachers. my dad worked on the army base. my parents were crystal clear about what they wanted for us and that was an education. so a lot of what we did to give back was in the educational arena. i love that president obama house the same values. -- has the same values. he knows that, for our nation, and education cannot be a luxury. it will strengthen the middle- class and strengthen the work force that will keep us innovative. if you're thinking about how you can search or how you can follow the president's example to honor this national day of service, start with this. make a difference in one child's life. mentor a student. donate a book to a library, donate supplies to a school. i am here because i have someone looking out for me. i'm telling you how important my education was. someone was pushing me to succeed. but i want to make sure the next generation has that as well. so last year, when i launched the eva longoria foundation, i focused on helping advance latinas in education. a belief that america should be a place where hard work pays off, where ambition can create opportunity, and, no matter where at you look like or where you come from or what your last name is, you can make it if you try.

[cheers and applause] ♪ >> good morning everybody. thank you, eva. to want to echo what eva said and say how wonderful it is to see everybody in this room. this day in particular has a lot of personal meaning for me. i am proud of my parents for countless reasons. [cheers and applause] i am glad you feel the same way. but one of the reasons i am particularly proud of my father today is that, 19 years ago, he signed that made martin luther king day a national day of service. [cheers and applause] and when he signed the bill, he reminded us of what dr. king often called life's most persistent and urgent question -- what are you doing for others? and in my family, the only wrong answer to that question is nothing. but there are as many right answers as there are people in this tent today and people in our country. eva spoke about how her parents inspired her. my parents certainly inspire me every day. but today, when i engaged in a service project with my husband mark, i will be thinking about my grandmother dorothy who started giving back when she was a child. she volunteered in her local school, helping to tutor migrant workers, farm children in southern california, in reading in english and writing. as she got older and had her own children, she provided school trips. she always wanted to cook an extra lunch for someone whose parents could not provide that for them. when she got older still, her children, including my mom, had left the hall. she became a big sister to mentor young girls like her who had been neglected and abused as a child. when she got older still and she could not do that any longer, she would knit clothing to donate to her local church. and then when she got older still and she could no longer in it, she gave with money she could to support the big sisters and big brother program and to help still ensure that little girls like her would have people who had believed in them, just what she had summit people who believe in her because she always believed that every child who had been neglected to grow up and be a mother, to have a home full of love and support so their children, like my mother, could have dreams that reached the sky. and that is the chain of service in our country and i am deeply grateful to the inspiring example of my grandmother and my parents and i am so grateful to see some much enthusiasm in this room today. and i hope that today will be either the only most recent date of service in so many of your lives, particularly with so many of the children in the tent today, your first day of service. it is so much more fun when we all work together. it is my great honor and privilege to ask beau biden to the stage. have fun today, everybody. ♪ >> good morning, everyone. thank you for leading the support and effort here in this inaugural weekend. thank you for your leadership here and think the most -- thank you most importantly to you all out here on this chilly saturday morning. your dedication is inspiration to me and my family. this event, the national day of service, is a wonderful way to honor, as chesley just eloquently and noted, the legacy of dr. king. but it is also a reminder that our veterans of our nation, every day is a big service for them and every day's a day of sacrifice. today, in my career in the military, i have had the honor of serving with two heroes whose service and sacrifice i have seen up close and personal. as of yesterday, we remember today the 6572 brave men and women in uniform who paid the ultimate sacrifice. [applause] returning home as fallen angels in my state and delaware. as you look around this magnetism all, you will see -- magnificent mall, you will see memorials to that service, memorial honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. but there are fewer monuments to the thousands of selfless acts of service and sacrifice performed every day around this country and the world by our servicemen and women. whether a is a 17-year-old boy reporting for basic training after begging his mom to sign a waiver to allow him to join or to national guardsmen who leaves his hall and his family as the storm approaches to go fill sandbags to protect another person's home, whether it be in a hurricane or super storm sandy. you can clap for that. that is right. [applause] the servicemen and women and the veterans and their families were here with us this morning are living monuments to that service. their commitment to serve, their willingness to volunteer should be inspiration and is an inspiration to me and it should be to you and i know it is. in spite of all the talk of how divided we are as a nation, how we are as a country, more and more americans are coming together to serve each other every day. volunteers in america is at a five-year high. in 2011, americans spent 8 billion hours giving back to their communities, enough hours to build the entire state building more than a thousand times over. [cheers and applause] you represent that. you're organizing food drives, mentoring children from the building playgrounds and so much more. when i look out and see you all and the kids here today, your service is having an even greater impact because you're in selling what my wife and i and brother and sister-in-law and my sister and brother-in-law are trying to do with our kids, instilling that had a service, making it second nature to but others first as chelsea's parents taught her. so my request to you today is to take advantage of the hundred plus organizations in this tent and on the small around this city that are out there to see if there is one where their mission matches your passion and consider serving our veterans as a small way of repaying the service that they have given to us. as my father said, helpless show -- help us show that the strength of our example as an example of our strength. plug in to do all they can to strengthen our nation. [cheers and applause] today, we can all and hand and do the same. and in doing so, we are working to make our great country worthy of our veterans service and their sacrifice. thank you and god bless our troops. [cheers and applause] your name?'s >> the president and first lady or at an elementary school in washington, d.c. where they participated in a community service project. afterwards they spoke about the importance of volunteering. >> that was a good one. [cheers and applause] >> hello, everybody. hello, hello, hello. [applause] this is a good looking crew here. first of all, we want to acknowledge the elementary school and the principal here who is doing outstanding work. you may think she is a student at no, she is the principal. as a look around the room, i see friends from all across the country, people who have been such great supporters of ours. more importantly, everybody here, adults and children understand the importance of giving back. as we think about, not so much about the inauguration, but the fact this is doctor king's birthday we will be celebrating, this weekend. that he saidminded everybody wants to be first, everybody wants to be a drum major, but if you are going to be a drum major, be a drum major for service, be a drum major for justice, the a drum major for looking out for other people. [applause] organizations like city year, the corporation for national service, all the great work that is being done day in, day out shows there is a huge thunder on the part of young people to get involved in to get to engage. it was interesting -- we were talking to one of that young people, i was stating a shelf -- michelle does -- says i did a fine job. i was talking to them and they said our parents, every holiday we would always do service and so i was taught at a very young age. the fact we have some outstanding young people here today, i want to say thank you to the parents for showing early on and to all of our young people how gratifying and fulfilling this is. this is really what america is about. this is what we celebrate. this inauguration, it is a symbol of our democracy works and how we peacefully transfer power, but it should also be an affirmation we are in this together and we have to look out for each other and work hard on behalf of each other. we are thrilled all of you are here. we are -- we hope you're having a great time. [applause] i hear reports that he and people did some good work and some of the older folks like me, who it hurts getting our knees, bending down a little bit, we were able to manage also. and some hal michelle obama looked stylus' the whole time she was doing it. -- looked stylish the whole time she was doing it. >> i know we have a lot of family members in the audience. we always force our family, when they do something really cool, they have to serve than they do it happily. i am proud for our families for always being there for us. we love you guys. as brock said, this is a weekend of celebration. we have to remember that the reason why we are here, why we are standing here, why we are able to celebrate this because a lot of people worked hard and supported us. and we have a job to do. this is a symbol of the kind of work we need to be doing for the next four years and beyond. [crash] that was the press. it is ok. i hope he did not break it. for all of the young people, and we have all lot of young people, city year members, this to be beset the school, as barack says, we are passing the baton to you. as you making your way through life, who are you pulling up behind you? as long as you are pulling somebody behind you, you are doing the right thing. we are very proud of the land we are going to come down and shake some hands.

ten. >> that's nothing new. that will be the case for any president you have. you still find areas of common ground. for me the big one will have to be medicare, medicaid. the things that are making the nation go bankrupt. >> here is what i think. i think this president has figured out what it takes to get republicans to come with him. i think he's spent too much time trying to be too nice. it's amazing for me to hear conservatives say he never reached out. now i think he says, the tougher that i am, the more likely i'm going to have some republicans come with me. he was tough on the debt ceiling. he was tough on the fiscal showdown. when he got tough, boehner had to let some republicans go his way. i think he want unity. the path is being tough and being clear about what he wants to get done bp. >> if you look at lift, second terms have not worked out how most presidents think they will work out. something happens. president bush, the financial crisis. president clinton, the impeachment. >> this guy is awesome. >> stuff happens. clean it up. it's family show. george w. bush never mentioned terrorism. that was the topic that dominated his term. i re-eisenhower's second inaugur inaugural. the most important thing was to send troops into little rock. i think most of these presidents have no idea what they're about to encounter. >> outside events end up shaping the legacy and how they respond. the president's maximum political power and validation is right now in this moment and in the next year. the question is does he strike while the iron is hot an does he take to the tendency which will be to appeal to the democratic pass and try to ram something through or do something against his nature and try to reach out against republicans and work with marco rubio on immigration. >> the interesting thing about political capital is mandates that what you create as the president. you can create more and grow more if you do well and if the economy comes back. there's a wild card here and it's iran. nobody needs to forget that iran will be major issue president obama will have have to wrestle with. >> i want to thank you. we also have breaking news

>> it's about the overall vision. this is not a first lady who bursts into the west wing saying we have to do this and this about this policy. >> i heard she's rarely seen. >> rarely seen. the thing to remember about michelle obama is she never wanted her husband to be a politician and she never wanted him to be a regular politician. they talk about getting past the washington noise. why they came and what they wanted to accomplish. early there was some tension because she one idea over what kind of president her husband should be and some advisors had another. that's soften now. we still see this defining aspect. it's almost like she's the guardian of the ultimate obama mission. this is what you're here to do. this is the standards i expect everybody to live up to. >> there's some controversy over whether that's true or not. her adjustment was difficult. everybody who becomes first lady says the first year is a real shock. this was somebody who was a hospital executive in chicago and was catapulted into the national spotlight. when i found reporting my book is the great surprise is that michelle obama was like the kid who didn't want to take the class and then got the a plus. some obama aides even said to me that she ended up adjusting to this life better than her husband did. she figured out the job of first lady and even learned to exploit some of its limitations and made it work for her. >> i wanted to ask you because i found it an interesting piece, you wrote something very striking and that is they wills others who may be seeking this job that it's really hard to get change in washington. you said he had a contracted sense of possibility. that is to think smaller about what he might do. you outline the agenda hesitate setting forward tomorrow which is huge. he's been having these think big sessions in the white house. >> i think that's the suspenseful question about this second term. we have so much trouble just with these budget fights and coming to common agreement, how are we going to do something on guns if that's the president's agenda. might there be a possibility of climate change, legislation. these are huge difficult questions that this president faces. >> how does he reconcile? >> david, you've worked in the white house, do you think the obamas experience is that much different than other presidents? >> i think it's very similar to what presidents have recently experienced. bill clinton came thinking he could change it. the last person who really began to sense there were greater possibilities was reagan. that was almost a different political age. >> you also think about how the clintons and how bill clinton. he seemed to revel in politics. they haven't had bill and hillary over for dinner. they've never had a dinner. >> i think this is something outsiders find difficult. they can be charming. they have great public personalities. what people in washington see but i think people all over the country don't see it if there's an introversion there. there's a self-protectedness. the obamas said both when the president became famous in 2004 and when they came to washington, no new friends which is the opposite of what we expect from politicians. politicians generally succeed by making everybody they friend. >> some people like to be president because they really enjoy the office. other people relish power and exercising power. >> is it true that president obama after meeting with some people he likes down time by himself? >> absolutely. if we're looking at whep this presidency happens, in some sense it takes place at 10, 11, 12:00 at night on the second floor study in the private resident when the president sits for hours and hours and he turns over the problems in his own mind. he writes about them and that's when he makes decision. >> does he enjoy being president? >> people have asked me that question again and again. there are things that he certainly enjoy. we can see him taking a greater relish in them. when he did the appearance on new year's i've right before the fiscal deadline. he hates budget fights. he was away from the family during their holiday vacation and yet the guy had a huge smile on his face. that is something new we're seeing from barack obama. somebody used a great word to describe him. they said bloody minded. >> you used that. >> somebody used it and i repeated it. >> thank you. fascinating article. tomorrow this time more inaugural balls will be under way. there's a lot happening. president clinton set a record attending 14 balls. you know who started tradition?

>> the first one with thomas jefferson here in washington, d.c., we thought the two political parties were going to destroy america. here jefferson at his inauguration reminded people that i'm not a republican or a federalist today, we're americans. we had a brutal 2012 election cycle. it's an opportunity to kind of reflect on american history and create a sense of unity. the most raccus was andrew jackson. when he got to the white house they were serving cider and people trashed the place. he slipped out the back of the executive mansion as it was called then and fled to alexandria and went to a tavern. he's tapped to be president. he took a barge to new york city and is sworn in. it's wrought with tradition. this is a time for the people to be glad that democracy works. the whole world is watching now. >> the longest inaugural was william henry harrison. >> he gave this long winded speech and got will. it was freezing weather. he died only a month later from his own inaugural. you don't want to be ranked below william henry harrison. >> what are you looking for tomorrow? >> most important is to have some kind of healing message. this is not a state of the union address. this is the president carefully reading lincoln's second inaugural, the poetry and language of it. i do think that barack obama, since the first one was historic for him, he may need to make this a historic speech. i was raise gun control. i would invoke women. the women brought him into power. it would be nice to see a woman quoted. >> eva longoria was the co-chair of the president's election campaign. she's now the co-chair of the inaugural committee. my conversation with eva about being a voice for the latino community. >> i did all of this as an american. i did all of this as a citizen of this great, great country. because i'm an actress doesn't mean i'm not literate on the subjects that i talk about.

>> i probably cry again. i'm very emotional that way. it's an honor to be involved in any way in this whole process. >> wall street journal this weekend front page story. it also says you are becoming a power player in washington. is that a conscious effort? what do you want to -- >> is that conscious? i don't know what that means and you have to be really careful with labels when people place, anoint you in way. it's great but at the same time you've got to still do the work. >> you're co-chairing the inauguration. you have events at the white house, at vice president biden's house. you have an event with republicans and democrats, kind of a bipartisan luncheon. what do you hope to -- do you see yourself running for politics one day? >> no. i love serving in the capacity that i'm serving now. i always say the power is with the citizen. i grew up with a family of volunteers and volunteerism wads really big in my family early on. i'm going to continue to serve my country in the way that i can. i have a tremendous amount of respect for politicians and what they do, what you do, journalists. >> don't try to pbutter me up. >> this is your day job. this is not my day job. i don't want anyone to consider i'm on par equal to what they do daily. >> you don't see yourself running? >> not any time soon. >> to you what does this inauguration mean? >> for me this election was about moving the country forward. that was a slogan of obama's campaign but it really was. it was two very clear choices regarding a lot of issues. whether you were a woman, gay, latino. this election represents that. we're going to move forward as a country. >> the world of washington politics, is it very different? >> completely different. >> how so? >> i always say this is a greater soap oprera? >> washington? >> yeah. it's hard to navigate. doing something political, i feel like it's relevant. i'm not saying my day job is not. there's place for entertainment and creating emotion and a release and outlet for people to step way from the real world is also honorable. it's a very interesting world over here. hollywood is chew you up and spit you out but it's a little easier to navigate. >> hollywood? >> yes. >> do you find, some people roll their eyes when they hear about an actress or actor becoming involved in politics. do you find that a hurdle? >> constantly. people say you're an actress. if you're a dentist are you only going to do teeth. i did all of this as an american. i did all of this as a citizen of this great, great country. because i'm an actress doesn't mean i'm not literate on the subjects i talk about. >> do you feel like you understand this town or do you still feel like you're in the process? >> i'm still in the process. i'm still a student of it. >> but you like it? >> i love it. i think it's fascinating. i think y'all are fascinating. >> this is a town of party affiliation. there's so much gridlock. when you see it up close, what's it like coming into this?

>> i think you're going to have to see a constant organizing mode. i would argue that the extremism we see in congress right now, that's breaking congress, have you speaker boehner who can't control his own caucus. i think when you see that sort of extremism in congress and nothing moving forward, you're in a unique time and it calls for unique measures. >> say something. >> margaret, do you see republicans -- how do you see republicans playing -- >> here's what's fascinating, there was a precedent called the hasser rule, which boehner has shunned two times now, this was the precedent you had to get the majority of your coalition to go along with the bill, otherwise you were eroding away your power base. twice now with sandy and with the fiscal cliff deal has depended on a majority of democrats and a reasonable edge of the opposition. reasonable amount of republicans to go along with it, can this sustain itself?

if the past is any guide, mrs. obama with those famous arms tends to favor strapless and one shoulder gowns, fitted at the waist and lots of color. sources say strapless is at least one option she's considering. designers are mindful this piece of clothing is not just an outfit, but a piece of history too. >> you have to describe in this garment what she's feeling. >> i felt like betsy ross. >> she dressed the first lady at the swearing in ceremony on inauguration morning. >> i didn't want to dress her for that evening of the ball. i wanted to do the inauguration?

do we have any idea what color? strapless? >> i can tell you i have believe seen one of the final gowns in contention for tomorrow night. we shall see if she choses it. having said that, i did speak to one of the designers in the running for this inaugural gown, and this person said something really interesting to me tonight. he said, what i'm feeling is a mixture of excitement and a fear of disappointing the people i love. and so it is an incredibly nerve-racking time for these designers. >> no pressure. >> exactly. >> as josie pointed out, they really find out when the world does. we saw that with jason woo and we will see it again tomorrow night, brooke. >> okay. alina cho, we will all be watching as we talk about the best kept secret in washington, i love it, the fashion of the first lady, thank you. and again, we are live at the warner theater, big night here, many balls in washington this is the place to be. we are honoring our men and women in uniform, and you know who the big headliner is here tonight, lynyrd skynyrd, i just talked to them backstage. you'll hear from them next live on cnn. ♪ stress sweat. it can happen any time, to anyone! stress sweat is different than ordinary sweat. it smells worse. get 4x the protection against stress sweat. introducing new secret clinical strength stress response scent. get 4x the protection against stress sweat. so if ydead battery,t tire, need a tow or lock your keys in the car, geico's emergency roadside assistance is there 24/7. oh dear, i got a flat tire. hmmm. uh... yeah, can you find a take where it's a bit more dramatic on that last line, yeah?

>> the temptation is to say yes, although we are listening to several civil rights activists today saying it's not as polarized as when we were watching the march on washington. i think everybody has been saying to the president, in terms of legislatively strike while the iron is hot. and all presidents re-elected to a second term, it's right now, the first year of their second term. remember, the six-year itch, when you get to the third cycle of the congressional elections, 2014, generally the minority, the house of republicans are expected to gain seats because there's this six-year itch. the time to pass legs. is in the next two years and really this year. >> i will jump in and say there's so many x factors out there right now, the arab spring, i think we think is a good thing right now, we don't know. we don't know what's going to han in all these places across the middle east. we hope democracy takes footing but we don't know. >> and in a year or two we were talking about al qaeda being decimated and now we're seeing nigeria and mali. >> right, i think his attention is going to be torn back to the middle east. it just will. my prediction is that we'll have our domestic fights, but i think on the danger front, i think sort of what the arab spring evolves into we don't know. >> let me tell our viewers what we're waiting for, everyone's -- we have the grambling university marching band. lynyrd skynyrd, he's going to be performing. you like him?

and does it really matter what he says in his speech? in the media we often focus on what does he say? there have been a few memorable inaugural addresses, does it really mat summer. >> i think it matters enormously. >> really? >> i think particularly, this we -- we've been disappointed in the last few big speeches he's given. you know, it didn't compare to the speeches he gave when he was running for office the first time and even his inaugural speech and the philadelphia speech on race and -- he's just given some beautiful speeches, but we haven't had that moment where he just sort of lifts us off our feet. so i want to hear that, i want to hear -- i wab the to hear that we're the greatest country on earth, and we can do, but in better language. >> i hear that from a lot of people who like obama and don't like president obama that, i mean, on the campaign trail, he's one way, and then in office his speeches -- i mean, it's a different tone. is that conscious by the president? >> i think it's -- you have to govern differently, and to a certain extent you're stuck in a trap. look, hope and change came in in '0 # and there was so much hope and expectations were high. we have a lot of tough challenges, you're talking about a president, we always want to have this big come together, we're going to do big things and huge things, we have a congress that can't pass a budget, you know? so i mean -- >> a senate that can't pass a budget. >> you and i are not going to get into this this evening. we have a congress that can't pass a budget and is holding our economy hostage right now, he has to be careful about promising too much. >> you think about ronald reagan, and there were some of his speeches we remember to this day, and yet if you think back on the last four years, other than the ones on the campaign trail, i think about newtown, that was where he got emotional, it was a -- it's a different kind of rhetoric and otheration. is it the mantle of president that he feels is different? >> there's nothing tougher to do as a speech giver than what he's about to do. the problem you have when you're dealing with the inaugural address, you have to deal with the present, the past and the future. you have to deal with the audience in front of you. you're going to have a million people in front of you. you're also dealing with people around the world. it's hard to do any of those well, you have to do them at the same time. i think he's going to want to do well tomorrow. i think he knows there are people out there that are going to say, this is the last big speech from obama. unless there's a war or something like that, there's pressure on him to do well. i think if i were advising him in this position, he has to sound the tone that he wants unity, that he wants the country to go forward and remind people of the values we hold in common, and he's got to show a certain amount of strength and determination that we're going to get there. in other words, i'll work with you, i'll work against you. the country's more important than the dwifgss here. >> you don't think that his state of the union address in two weeks before a joint session of congress is going to be as important if not more important? >> that's not the over arching themattic visionary -- >> but it's policy. >> it's in the weeds and it's what we're going to get done now. >> whoever remembers state of the union addresses. >> oh, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> we don't want a state of the union speech tomorrow, and certainly the world doesn't. >> here's what we remember from the state of the union address, you lie. >> you lie. >> the speech that propelled barack obama on to the national stage in 2004, the nugget, we are not made of red states or blue states, we are the united states of america. something along those lines if he can strike that tone tomorrow, that would reach out to republicans. >> that is the hardest. >> can he not strike that tone because the country wants it? >> i know you healed that standard high. that is three syllables that summed up the united states. i don't know if there are six syllables left like that in america. but if they're there -- >> i think what you're going to hear tomorrow is not going to be that different from the campaign trail. expand the middle class, strengthen the middle class. >> he's going to be speaking in the next few minutes. we're going to take a quick break, hear from the president over at the candlelight celebration. as question go to break, more from the gramling university marching band. ♪ >>> the grambling university marching band. the vice president of the united states is about to speak with dr. jill biden. let's listen in to hear what they're saying at the candlelight celebration, the national museum. >> that means so much to me and joe. joe and i are thrilled and i know you feel the same way to have barack obama as our president for another four years and michelle as first lady. and i may be a little biassed, but i couldn't think of a better man than my husband to help our president lead our country for the next four years. as long as he has the privilege of serving this nation, i know that joe will keep fighting for american people every day ladies and gentlemen, please welcome me in joining my husband, our vice president joe biden. >> hello, i'm jill biden's husband, and i'm delighted to be with all of you here. let me begin with the simplest of statements. thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you, thank you. you are the only reason we are here. thank you for your support, thank you for being here and most of all thanking for believing in us. ladies and gentlemen, i've been honored to serve as vice president. but i've been especially honored to serve as barack obama's vice president. this man's already done an absolutely remarkable job. historic health care reform. two supreme court appointees, justice sotomayor and elaine kagan. ending the war in iraq and about to end the war in afghanistan!
